Yeah, unfortunately the lower prices that got people hooked are not sustainable and YouTube TV was losing money on every subscriber. Really the only savings from traditional cable should be that you're not paying for equipment since it still costs all providers roughly the same to broadcast each cable channel. There is also some savings for lower admin costs though with no installation necessary and streamlined support. 

Personally, I thought it was a crazy bargain that I was only paying $50 a month for YouTube TV because I remember the days of close to $300 DirecTV bills. The $65 is still a very fair price to me especially with how full the service is becoming, but I understand a lot of their market may be resistant to the increase, especially considering the current economy.

I don't get it when the defensive player tries to stick their finger into the butt of an offensive player once they've been tackled even though the offensive player is wearing pants? Are they simply checking for holes to ensure the uniform is up to code and then perhaps get them thrown out of the game if not? Is it perhaps some type of butthole bounty put into place by the defensive coordinator? 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

I completely get the economy argument and I am pretty much equally concerned with that if not even moreso. But dammit people, your refusal to wear a mask in public is making the virus worse and the economy. They are intertwined. The mask is not to protect you, it is to protect other people from you. For the next year, just operate under the assumption that everyone you encounter has the virus. That's all we have to do. 

We can fight this WITH the economy staying open, but not if the people who turn themselves into knots finding info about how "not bad" the virus is continue to take no precautions. It doesn't matter that you as a healthy young adult have very low (or almost zero) risk of death. That is not the point. Put on an effing mask.

Can the deniers stipulate how bad things have to get before we start acting like we have a serious problem on our hands? I'm really taken aback that we still have people who refuse to take any preventative measures or acknowledge what's in front of us. Have you seen what our curve looks like compared with European countries? What's the difference between us and them? Poorly educated, stubborn population and science denial.

Hope Zeke gets well soon and hasn’t spread to anyone who is at risk. Hopefully this can serve as a cautionary tale to athletes that if you do not take this seriously, you will be more and more likely to get it.

I think it's mostly to do with the fact that when you increase testing, you're no longer solely testing the sickest people with the worst symptoms, so you really should be seeing the death rate falling drastically even as cases spike. We know that the actual death rate isn't 5%, it's just that everyone who gets it isn't being tested. 

In the beginning they were telling people if they had symptoms to not go to the hospital for a test unless they absolutely had to, just isolate until it passes.

If Penn State got their wins re-instated after covering up child rape, I don't see why ours for covering up tattoo trading can't be.

I didn’t really mean it to come off as a violent statement, although I guess I get where you’re coming from. I just was attempting to give an example of how words within certain groups can be viewed one way, but when used by an outsider towards that group, it has a completely different connotation. I think there’s so many different examples you could use for this type of thing.
 

Like why is it okay for you to beat up your little brother, but when someone else does it, it’s a problem? Same kind of idea, know what I mean?

You can’t seriously think that was a threat to anybody.  It clearly involved nobody on this site and was directed at absolutely nobody. Then some random guy responds directly threatening to murder me. 
 

You guys can’t honestly be this bad of people. I’m in shock.

Because one is an oppressed minority and the other is the privileged majority. I don't understand why it's so hard for people to grasp why one way is a sensitive issue and the other way is not. White people have no (legitimate) fear of oppression. Black people do. That's why there is a difference between the two scenarios. 

It's the whole "punching up" idea. You can make fun of rich people, the president, famous people, etc. But it's in bad taste to make fun of homeless or poor people in a similar way. It's not just race thing, there are other scenarios where double standards rightfully exist.

The problem is, this is a completely irrelevant point. We have no issues in this country relating to it being acceptable for black people to say a word and white people not being able to. It doesn't matter and it's a stupid thing to whine about. 

I'm gay and I call other gay people "f*g" sometimes. But if you say it to me, you're getting punched in the face. It's a completely acceptable double standard that should be of no concern to you.

My favorite is how harsh the poster got at the fan who said that the OSU game is "winnable". Like he's just trying to be positive, he's not plotting murder against your whole family. 

But to be fair, I'd probably go nuts as well if I'm staring down the barrel of an 85% chance of loss number nine in a row in this rivalry.
